The CONNECT team have been supporting Unilever Nepal to activate and recruit Hamri Didis (HDs) in Jumla. The response has been overwhelming with attendance at every community engagement and early trade volumes exceeding our expectations - evidence that women in the Mid and Far West are hungry for self-sustainaining opportunities.
We met with 395 women at 7 engagements and appointed 98 HDs. 41 HDs have placed their first orders, investing NPR 279,910.
As of 23 April, there are 339 HDs in CONNECT Districts.
